— Clemson’s leading tackler, Stephone Anthony, and seventh-leading tackler Corey Crawford announced Wednesday they will return to Clemson for their senior seasons.

Both were starters on Clemson’s defense that led the nation in tackles for loss.

Anthony’s 131 tackles were the most by a Clemson player in 10 years, when Leroy Hill had 145 in 2003. He ranked second on the team in tackles for loss with 13.5 and added four sacks and an interception.

Anthony led Clemson in tackles in seven of the 13 games this past season.

Crawford finished the season with 52 tackles, including 10.5 that were behind the line of scrimmage. He also added three sacks and four passes deflected. He led the team in quarterback pressures with 16 and had an 18-yard interception return against Georgia.

Crawford started 12 of the 13 games this year.
